Random House Pulls The Plug On “The Jewel of Medina”

How is Islam Not Already Controlling the USA? @YouTube

Publisher Random House has pulled a novel about Islam over protest fears
Random House, the American publisher, has withdrawn a novel about the Prophet Mohammed’s child bride, fearing it could “incite acts of violence”.

Telegraph
08 Aug 2008

“The Jewel of Medina,” a debut novel by journalist Sherry Jones, 46, was due to be published next Tuesday and an eight-city publicity tour had been scheduled.
The novel traces the life of A’isha from her engagement to Mohammed, when she was six, until the prophet’s death.
Jones said that she was shocked to learn in May, that publication would be postponed indefinitely.
“I have deliberately and consciously written respectfully about Islam and Mohammed … I envisioned that my book would be a bridge-builder,” said Jones.
Random House deputy publisher Thomas Perry said in a statement the company received “cautionary advice not only that the publication of this book might be offensive to some in the Muslim community, but also that it could incite acts of violence by a small, radical segment.”
He added: “In this instance we decided, after much deliberation, to postpone publication for the safety of the author, employees of Random House, booksellers and anyone else who would be involved in distribution and sale of the novel.”
Jones, who has just completed a sequel to the novel examining her heroine’s later life, is free to sell her book to other publishers, Perry said.
The decision has sparked controversy on Internet blogs and in academic circles. Some compared the controversy to previous cases where portrayals of Islam were met with violence.
Protests and riots erupted in many Muslim countries in 2006 when cartoons, one showing the Prophet Mohammed wearing a turban resembling a bomb, appeared in a Danish newspaper. At least 50 people were killed and Danish embassies attacked.
British author Salman Rushdie’s 1988 book “The Satanic Verses” was met with riots across the Muslim world. Rushdie was forced into hiding for several years after Iran’s then supreme religious leader, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, proclaimed a death edict, or fatwa, against him.
Jones, who has never visited the Middle East, spent several years studying Arab history and said the novel was a synthesis of all she had learned.
“They did have a great love story,” Jones said of Mohammed and A’isha, who is often referred to as Mohammed’s favorite wife. “He died with his head on her breast.”

In order to make her research as accurate and authentic as possible, journalist Sherry learned Arabic, studied scholarly works about Aisha’s life.

The Blasphemy Game

I found this interesting because of the four religions in this top 20 list, only Islam’s outrage has resulted in death.

Here’s the tally,

* Christianity, blasphemed 13 times, zero deaths.
* Buddhism, blasphemed once, zero deaths.
* Sikhs, blasphemed once, zero deaths.
* Islam, blasphemed 5 times, 140 deaths.

Do the math.

Egyptian Parliament Okays Female Genital Mutilation

(IsraelNN.com) Conservatives in the Egyptian parliament have made female genital mutilation (circumcision) legal again in Egypt. The conservatives succeeded in striking several laws that had been passed by the parliament’s religious Shura Council in the past. The laws canceled also include a law limiting marriage age to 18 and up, a law permitting a mother to register a child on her name and a law allowing neighbors of a family that beats its children to report the beatings to the police.

One of the parliament’s members said that the law permitting a mother to register a child on her name “encourages adultery.”

A Cairo appellate judge who is also the legal advisor to the Council for the Mother and Child said that the decision to strike the laws contravened international agreements signed by Egypt.

Backwards and barbaric! No two ways about it.

Brigitte Bardot On Trial [again] for Insulting Muslims


Brigitte Bardot on trial for Muslim slur

PARIS (Reuters) – French former film star Brigitte Bardot went on trial on Tuesday for insulting Muslims, the fifth time she has faced the charge of “inciting racial hatred” over her controversial remarks about Islam and its followers.

Ahem…Islam is NOT a race. The case should be thrown out. -scarlett

Prosecutors asked that the Paris court hand the 73-year-old former sex symbol a two-month suspended prison sentence and fine her 15,000 euros ($23,760) for saying the Muslim community was “destroying our country and imposing its acts”.

Since retiring from the film industry in the 1970s, Bardot has become a prominent animal rights activist but she has also courted controversy by denouncing Muslim traditions and immigration from predominantly Muslim countries.

She has been fined four times for inciting racial hatred since 1997, at first 1,500 euros and most recently 5,000.

Prosecutor Anne de Fontette told the court she was seeking a tougher sentence than usual, adding: “I am a little tired of prosecuting Mrs Bardot.”

Bardot did not attend the trial because she said she was physically unable to. The verdict is expected in several weeks.

French anti-racist groups complained last year about comments Bardot made about the Muslim feast of Eid al-Adha in a letter to President Nicolas Sarkozy that was later published by her foundation.

Muslims traditionally mark Eid al-Adha by slaughtering a sheep or another animal to commemorate the prophet Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son on God’s orders.

France is home to 5 million Muslims, Europe’s largest Muslim community, making up 8 percent of France’s population.

“I am fed up with being under the thumb of this population which is destroying us, destroying our country and imposing its acts,” the star of ‘And God created woman’ and ‘Contempt’ said.

Bardot has previously said France is being invaded by sheep-slaughtering Muslims and published a book attacking gays, immigrants and the unemployed, in which she also lamented the “Islamisation of France”.

This is an example of Legal Jihad.

“I am fed up with being under the thumb of this population which is destroying us, destroying our country and imposing its acts,”

Just the fact that Bardot has been brought up on charges of “inciting racial hatred” for stating her mind and well…telling it how it is, is proof of what she says is true. Think about it.

No Islam is not a threat not a threat at all. /sarc

For those who are not familiar with the tradition of animal (slaughter) sacrifice celebrating the muslim holiday Eid. Here are some photos. As the link states they are graphic.

Eid Festival Around The World – Graphic (I)

The beauty of the Muslim Eid al-Adha festival as it is celebrated around the world:

Sanitary and oh so hygienic… 🙄 Bear in mind the ritual slaughtering is allowed in certain parts of the west.

Old Muslim Feast Upsets New Istanbul

The annual slaughter has embroiled health authorities, animal rights activists, politicians eager to join the European Union and religious leaders in a debate that intersects many of Turkey’s most contentious social struggles. It also has ignited arguments that even the most devoted followers of Islam are finding difficult to contest.

“The situation today is totally absurd,” said Abdurrahman Dilipak, who writes extensively on religious issues. “The whole sacrifice has degenerated. It’s like a butcher’s festival. People are taking sheep to the ninth floor and cutting them in the bathroom. It smells, there are flies all over the place, there’s blood going into the water system and street dogs are grabbing the bones.”

Is this what we want in our cities and towns? I am with ya Brigitte enough is enough.

[…]she also lamented the “Islamisation of France”.

Now where would she had gotten such a silly idea?

Facts and statistics? Um..yeah.

The 751 No-Go Zones of France

They go by the euphemistic term Zones Urbaines Sensibles, or Sensitive Urban Zones, with the even more antiseptic acronym ZUS, and there are 751 of them as of last count. They are convienently listed on one long webpage, complete with street demarcations and map delineations.

What are they? Those places in France that the French state does not control. They range from two zones in the medieval town of Carcassone to twelve in the heavily Muslim town of Marseilles, with hardly a town in France lacking in its ZUS. The ZUS came into existence in late 1996 and according to a 2004 estimate, nearly 5 million people live in them.

Comment: A more precise name for these zones would be Dar al-Islam, the place where Muslims rule. (November 14, 2006)

Nov. 28, 2006 update: For an insight into how bad things are, the police in Lyons demonstrated on Nov. 9, denouncing “violence against the forces of order.” Things have reached a pretty sad state when the police have to demonstrate in the streets against the criminals.

Jan. 5, 2008 update: In a remarkable statement, Michael Nazir-Ali, the Pakistani-born bishop of Rochester, writes in the Daily Telegraph about the situation in Great Britain:

there has been a worldwide resurgence of the ideology of Islamic extremism. One of the results of this has been to further alienate the young from the nation in which they were growing up and also to turn already separate communities into “no-go” areas where adherence to this ideology has become a mark of acceptability. Those of a different faith or race may find it difficult to live or work there because of hostility to them.

Jan. 16, 2008 update: Paul Belien of Brussels Journal provides an update on the ZUS, connecting them to organized crime in a way that helps explain police reluctance to intervene:

Continued

Brigitte Bardot dares to speak the truth and is prosecuted for it. The “Islamisation of France” is a reality folks. Islam loves to take away our basic freedom of speech. Get used to it, it is all downhill from here. Unless some drastic measures are taken and soon.

Iran: Top cleric says women without veils must die

More hijab madness in the name of Islam.

Iran: Top cleric says women without veils must die

Tehran, 19 Dec. (AKI) – A top Muslim cleric in Iran, Hojatolislam Gholam Reza Hassani said on Wednesday that women in Iran who do not wear the hijab or Muslim headscarf, should die.

“Women who do not respect the hijab and their husbands deserve to die,” said Hassani, who leads Friday prayers in the city of Urumieh, in Iranian Azerbaijan.

“I do not understand how these women who do not respect the hijab, 28 years after the birth of the Islamic Republic, are still alive,” he said.

“These women and their husbands and their fathers must die,” said Hassani, who is the representative of the Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei in eastern Azerbaijan.

Hassani’s statements came after two Kurdish feminists in Iran were accused of being members of an armed rebel group and of carrying out subversive activities threatening the security of the state.

It is believed that his statements and the arrests could spark a fresh crackdown on women who do not repect the Islamic dress code in Iran.

Thousands of women in Iran have already been warned this year for their “un-Islamic dress” such as wearing tight, short coats and skimpy headscarves. Source.
